- Diesel substitute in transport sector.
- Heating fuel, without any modification of engines and boilers.
- Renewable: because it is obtained from the cultivation of oleaginous plants widely diffused;
- Biodegradable: because it is dispersible and dissolvable in the space of a few days. The waste of usual fuels persists on the contrary much longer;
- Safe: because it is guarantee of an energy efficiency as high as that of fuels and mineral combustibles;
- Efficient: because it is excellent in the performance of vehicles and heating systems.
The use of Biodiesel grants several environmental benefits in terms of:
- temperature reduction with consequent lowering of the global warming
- reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- improvement of the energy efficiency
The Biodiesel is furthermore able to develop a virtuous circle between Agriculture, Industry and Environment and it is a diesel substitute obtained from vegetal oils. Currently Italian industry ranks second in Europe for production capacity of Biodiesel with a value which is around 2.000.000 tons per year. Moreover this value is growing in view of new ongoing investments coming from national companies.
